ORDERING BOOKS / FAQs
All our prices are listed in NZ dollars and there is a Minimum Order value of $20 excluding the postage charges.
How do I search the categories?
Descriptive keywords should be searched for within our google powered search box on the BOOK SEARCH page.
It is necessary when using this to then use the "Find within page" function of your browser menu, to find the searched for item within the catalogue page.
You can also use this method for keyword or author or title search.
Also try the link to our rare books database, where we list a different database of rare and/or collectible items.
How do I place an order?
Email us the items title and product code "[#000] or [PB000]" as well as your address, including which country we will be shipping to. It may be easier to cut and paste the listing into an email, e.g.

Any major faults will be cited such as bookplates, tears or staining to text and any extra information pertaining to content. Comics follow general comic book gradings but are not graded by a comic expert so be advised if you want MINT copies to ask for more information upon ordering.
The first grade refers to the Book condition, the second to the Dustwrapper condition. If there is no second grade then the book has no dustwrapper.
After the book price there will be a code such as A/A or C/B etc. this refers to the Local (New Zealand National) / International shipping rate as found on the Payment and Shipping page. Within New Zealand we can ship multiple items for one charge. For overseas there is a per parcel charge based on the packaged weight as estimated in our shipping rates.
